Essential Oil Series post #5: Safety

Safety and Dilution are important when using Essential Oils!

I love using essential oils to create a healthy environment in my home. I use them as a preventative measure with my kids, heal minor scrapes and tummy aches, reduce anxiety, and promote peaceful sleep. Keep in mind, essential oils cannot replace medical care for serious illness or injury and safety is very important.

Wellness Mama and Growing Up Herbal have great articles on essential oil safety:,

Healthy Honeybee

Buzz Buzz Buzz. I’ve always felt like a little bee buzzing around searching, learning, and striving to have a healthier home, healthier kids, healthier meals, healthier habits, and a gracious thankful attitude about everything. My name is Andrea and I am truly a “Healthy Honeybee”. I am a happy busy mom of three and I adore my family. I love to cook, clean, and always try to find more time to sit on the floor and “play” with the kids which really means jump on mommy time. Hubby’s job keeps us moving and starting over every 2-3 years which keeps my inner travel bug alive and my active planner mind always churning. On my webpage and blog, I hope you will buzz along with me learning and striving for having a healthier home and a healthier life. I will share tips, stories, and lots of research about my favorite food recipes, homemade personal care and cleaning products, exercise, essential oils, and more. I hope that you learn, laugh, and find easy solutions to make your life healthier.
